democrats to vote in favor of it. it marks the second time now that house speaker john boehner has broken his own rule, the boehner rule, model on the hastert rule. said the speaker would not bring any bill to the floor for a vote that does not have the support of a majority of his conference, a majority of the majority, it's known as. but last night, just about 20% of the republican conference voted for the bill. the vote split the leadership, majority leader eric cantor, majority whip mccarthy voted for the bill. boehner first broke his rule on new year's day when he allowed a vote to avert the fiscal cliff on taxes. apparently there's an addendum to the boehner rule. the majority of the majority, unless the country is on the verge of a tax crisis, or chris christie has access the to a megaphone. christie made sure this week that republicans knew he would use it. >> and i'll say again, new jersey does not expect anything more than what was done for louisiana and alabama and mississippi and if they want to make new rules about disasters, they picked the wrong state to make the new rules

bickering gets put aside. do these guys like each other or do they not like each other? mr. boehner said something rather strong about harry reid. we assume that kind of language was not used in the white house this morning, but can they really get along and do what needs to get done? >> there is -- there are pockets of enmity that are quite well-known. what's really wonderful about washington, and this day is going to be full of this, is that you can have members, particularly on the senate floor, that can just bash each other. john has had a bird's-eye view of this. during the day with key issues of state at risk, and at the end of the day they can go off to the moncle and have a drink or a steak and so -- >> although a lot less than used to take place. >> that's true. >> jill biden, the vice president's wife, the second lady of the united states, begins her way down to the podium. >> i think there is more partisanship about to break out. >> call it bipartisanship. >> maybe i'm caught up in the spirit of the day. >> explain. >> i'll explain. >> and where do you see that? >> i have some

of representatives to do that. i think that would be a mistake. >> john boehner responded the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending statement. wendell, a government shut down, is that something that really might happen? neither side is ready to blink yet. he has laid out they are ready to compromise if possible that could lead to a government shut down although probably not right away. president obama suggested right before the u.s. the people at home might be told they have to wait for their money. >> if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time social security checks and veteran's benefits will be delayed. we may not be able to pay our military air traffic controllers specialist who track down lose nuclear materials wouldn't get their paychecks. >> that's not default but credit agencies would likely downgrade america's rating that would raise the cost of borrowing money. ben bernanke says it's very, very important congress avoid this. >> republicans know it is not the first thing that would come from not paying all of
% of americans approve of the job he's doing as president. only 26% approve of the republican party. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, 9% approval rating. this is a movement, this is a party in retreat and that's why the president did what he did yesterday. >> let's look at that. best case scenario would be to have two strong parties and a great national conversation and great sense of balance. i understand how you could read the speech as i won, ha-ha, and also, could be seen as this is what the country is telling me. how do we get the other points of view in there. maybe perhaps -- this is the hard part, extract what i think is dying and what i think you think is dying, that is the extremist part of that. >> the extreme part of the republican party is in retreat and just as bill buckley chased john birchers out of the conservative movement in the 1960s, so, too, will these extremists be chased out of the mainstream of the republican party. they will evolve or they will die. it's that simple. i'm not so sure the president can say, katty kay, this is what the american people

boehner, eric cantor, the number two republican in the house, and mitch mcconnell, the republican leader in the senate, are at the white house right now having coffee with the president. do you think that there really is a chance that there can be some sort of a get together, bipartisan effort, something we haven't seen thus far? >> you know, not on everything, bob, but on some things for sure. not just because people are becoming enlightened, but because of their self-interest. if you look at your own polling and the polling that we have seen in the last few days, the republican party is trading at record lows. the congress at almost record lows. the strategy of obstruction has not been worked well for the republican party. that's why i think you saw them retreat from the plan to push this debt ceiling issue immediately upon returning to work. so i think that there's a prospect for getting some things done. certainly on issues like immigration reform. there's a powerful impetus for there to be progress. i think we can make some. >> david, thank you very much. you're going to be leaving

congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies. the clerk: mr. boehner of ohio, mr. cantor of virginia, ms. pelosi of california. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to clause 12-a of rule 1, the house stands in recess su true -- 1.2 trillion in automatic spending cuts that have been pushed off until next month. the fact is, we cannot finish the job of that is the reduction through spending cuts alone. the cuts we have already made to priorities other than medicare, medicaid, so security and defense mean that we spend on everything from education to public safety less as a share of the economy that has been true for a generation. that is not a recipe for growth. we have to do more to stabilize the finances over the medium and long-term, and also spur more growth in the short term. i have said i am hoping to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i also said we need more revenue for tax reform by closing loopholes for the wealthiest americans. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing

connell. speaker boehner and congressman eric cantor. i confirmed that. with each of their offices. a nice bipartisan tradition and good way to kick off a new term. those of you discussing he does not do enough socializing with leaders, here he is doing just that. he's been with -- the wives, vice president biden and his wife has been there as has the first lady. they will then head in the motorcade and make their way up here to the capitol where they will go into a hold for about an hour before the president speaks. >> senator john kerry arriving at the capitol. there's senator kerry. >> confirmation hearings. secretary of state. >> this is the entrance you see usually in the wide shots of the white house. not the back side with the rounded edge. but a flat-wide front of the white house. >> there you see senator kerry on the right. >> one of the big differences when you have a change of power, you know, current president greets the new president and one of the traditions is he leaves a note. that doesn't happen this time. president obama doesn't need to leave himself a note about the seco
went to the house in march of last year, leading democrats had already conceded to defeat to boehner and cantor. i would say this of people who were in there for 30 years, how many seats do think the democrats are going to win? they never went higher than 50 and needed 25 seats. they ended up with seven. so what are we doing with the democratic party that cannot defend the country against the most ravaging the ignorant, cruel, vicious, anti-people and hire promoting republican party? what what happened to the bill? then we will talk about we think are the best strategy is to push a florida. jesse jackson is no longer in congress. he was the one, jesse jackson, jr. from illinois, introduced it. what happened there? >> he had about 21 sponsors. then the democrats decided sense of and did not want to make minimum wage an issue, they had george miller put in a bill -- >> the congressman from california critics to whom all democrats differ to on labor issues. they had a hundred or so democrats signed on. it was designed to go nowhere. it was $9.80 minimum wage by 2014. >> by the way, for
's comments, i think there are far reaching and might be unconstitutional. i helped john boehner and mitch mcconnell work hard to prevent him -- i hope john boehner and mitch mcconnell work hard to prevent him from doing whatever he wants. he cannot do what ever he wants. i think they should work together. it was a sad thing what happened on the east coast. that does not go to the root of the problem. people should not have guns, let's focus on them, not eliminating certain types of guns or clips. host: is there anything that the president said that you agree with? caller: he cannot use funding to study this because it is part of the constitution. i think that they should have some kind of universal system to monitor people that are near -- they are not right mentally or should not have guns. they should have a database. how much information they should capture -- these are all problems he should not do in two weeks for one week. he should talk with other people. congress should help as well. host: you mentioned you are an instructor. what is it that you teach? caller: economics and accoun

republicans. the control the house. -- lynch pins of in the house. john boehner said they wouldn't move of immigration. that is an amazing thing to. they had a brief area where it appeared it would happen and they stalled out. he said he wanted to tackle this. it was clear he wanted to do this in a small piecemeal fashion. that is not the way the senate wants to go about it. they feel if you do that do everything at the same time you lose too many people and you cannot do a deal out of the chamber. that is the big question, to house republicans decide that they want to go full bore an to immigration and of they do, how do they go about doing better? a think we are probably likely that we will see an immigration debate a in of the senate. 2007 a broken to the floor and was filibustered. i think we are probably likely to see a book about a the senate this time around. >> without overstating the of this, how much did the election results but the republicans not in the driver's seat, and the compromise seat on a bipartisan immigration? >> the dynamic of house republicans is interesting of t
